Dem Rep Castro Reacts to N Korea Nuke Test: Trump’s ‘Twitter Shouting Match’ with Kim Jong-Un Is ‘Escalating’ the Situation


Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Rep  Joaquin Castro (D-TX) discussed North Korea’s latest nuclear test and said that President Donald Trump’s tweets about North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un have not been helpful. When asked about Trump’s “fire and fury,” tweet Castro said, “I don’t think it’s been helpful. I don’t think it’s helpful to get into a Twitter shouting match with a 32-year-old dictator. I think it, unfortunately, escalated the tension and situation.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
